Jim Grant: UNICEF Visionary
UNICEF, 2002 - Social Science - 172 pages
Jim Grant was a visionary leader on a global scale. As Executive Director of UNICEF, the United Nations Children's Fund, from 1980 to 1995, he launched a worldwide child survival and development revolution. The practical result was that by 1995, 25 million children were alive who would otherwise have died. Millions more were living with better health and nutrition. The eight stories in this volume, each one written by a close colleague of Jim Grant, celebrate this achievement. They also draw out the lessons on Grant's vision and leadership - lessons relevant in many other contexts.
